About

You are one of the multitudes of incarnations of the great Horus, and side by side with the pharaohs, you are fighting against the mighty Seth, who unleashes numerous disasters upon the lands of Ancient Egypt. Win wars and overcome crises, discover new technologies, worship your gods and conquer neighboring tribes! Are you wise enough to help the ancient kings to unify Lower and Upper Egypt, build a stable economy and to erect the Great Pyramids?

Based on real history
You will find yourself in Memphis, 3500-2140 years B.C., the time of the first six dynasties of pharaohs. You will unify the country and create a prosperous kingdom, which later will have to face the havoc of the First Intermediate Period.

Construction of the Great Pyramids
You will lead the construction of pyramids, choose their design and materials. This process requires tremendous investments, but it is the only way to keep peace and order in the country.

Ancient society simulator
You will not only deal with the problems of farmers and craftsmen but also make important political decisions, which will define the future of the kingdom. Numerous challenges and events of different scale await you.

Ancient maps
Discover the world of the Old Kingdom: exploit new lands, send expeditions to different places, and meet different cultures. Use every opportunity to learn about your surroundings and to expand Egypt's borders.

Differences from Predynastic Egypt
•   More diversity in the game, varied tasks in the regions, different tactics for playthroughs and unique bonuses from patron gods.
•   Egypt: Old Kingdom is longer.
•   New technologies: 3D engine and skeletal animation.

Is this finally out? (Edited to add: Yesss!)

I've always liked this game series, and I've got a video series on Predynastic that I'm going to work up someday.

This game is sort-of a half-sequel to pre-dynastic, picking up the plot around halfway through the first game (but from the perspective of settlers heading south from the main kingdom and with the Horus / Set war still on the way.

For various values of "easy". Their Greek history game is no joke! (Notably they trimmed back most or all of the mechanics introduced in that one, when they developed the two Egyptian games.)
